Courtyard Entry House Plans

We all know that first impressions when meeting new people are important. What about the first impression that your home makes? How will others enter into your new home, and what impression do you want to give to your visitors? Your home’s entryway communicates a great deal to visitors about what you value in terms of style, form, and function. Let’s explore one of the most unique but timeless appeals, A Courtyard Entryway.

 

What does a Courtyard Entry look like? 

A Courtyard Entry design can also be known as an L-shaped house. The “L-shape” design offers a unique visual with instant curb appeal in the shape of an “L.”  This layout allows the home to open up more with the garage setback. Our collection of courtyard-entry house plans can present this appeal with a design that is angled, straight, or even surrounded by a beautiful landscape around the entryway.  

 

Courtyard Entry Characteristics

There are certainly a variety of entryways. Various homes favor various entryway designs. Courtyard entry house plans are among the most popular- particularly in the southern portions of the United States. What first impressions do Courtyard Entry Houses often evoke? What are a few of their characteristics and benefits?

  • Courtyard entry houses can feature lovely landscaped areas- plants and flowers in garden beds or pots. When you walk through a gate or a door into another outdoor setting, you see what often makes these settings lovely: natural, often native plants.
  • Courtyard entry houses provide private seating areas. If a front porch is not your cup of tea, a courtyard entry house can provide the same relaxed atmosphere within a private, quiet area.
  • Various courtyard entry house plans, particularly those in the Mediterranean or Southwest styles, often provide additional outdoor space within the home’s walls. Rooms are built around a central courtyard area. This central area often features a pool or seating space where occupants and guests can enjoy a peaceful, relaxing environment.
  • Courtyard entry house plans allow guests and visitors to transition seamlessly between the outdoors and the indoors. If you can decorate and plant in the courtyard entry, proactively creating a balanced space, guests will feel even more welcome before entering your house.

 

 

Courtyard entry house plans provide a variety of choices in size, style, and floor plans. They also allow you to make a first impression using the natural surroundings, landscaping, and other design aspects. If you fall in love with a plan that doesn’t offer the Courtyard feature, and you prefer this appeal, Check out our Modification Services at America’s Best House Plans; we love giving you choices — a range of options to meet the needs and desires of your family.
